Lovers of Microsoft Office felt a surge of excitement when, back in October, a report saying that Microsoft was testing an Office suite for iOS devices, emerged. However, when contacted to explain the leak, Microsoft was quick to deny the information. Now, new material posted accidentally on the company’s support site seem to indicate otherwise. The leak was noticed by French Apple news blog Mac4Ever.

The team behind the website found references to Excel for iPad planted in the middle of the official Microsoft product support pages. These references appear as product tags that have been seemingly linked to product tags incorrectly. An example refers to a document related to custom numeric formats in Excel. On the French version of the site the document is listed as applying to Excel for iPad but on the American version we find the same document linked to Excel 2013.


MacRumors performed a couple of more searches for “Office Mobile for iPhone” and “PowerPoint for iPad” and came up with other references, as well.

As noted above, Microsoft’s iOS Office suite has been rumored for a while and even if the official company denied the rumor, these screenshots only bring more credibility to the information. In July, Microsoft even posted a job listing in which it was looking to hire engineers to work on a novel project related to Mac and the iOS. In October, the Czech Republic team announced that a Microsoft iOS Suite was in the makes in Microsoft’s development labs. So, it’s only a matter of time before the Office suite is released.

Didn't they say that it was going to be released in mid January 2013? Or am I thinking of something else o_O

Guess we'll have to wait and see how good it is.
